Bure Park Primary School

Based in Bicester with 366 pupils, the school pupils, management and Governing teams at Bure Park Primary School already had a great environmental track record , achieving Bronze and Silver Eco-Schools flags. The school had previously explored solar for several years – but had been unable to find a way of completing the project. We were therefore delighted to connect with the school and help them to install solar panels.

Bure Park school has a large south-facing roof which made it ideal for solar, and we were able to install 240 solar panels in what was the largest solar installation on a primary school in the county at that time.

We are very pleased with the solar panel installation and are looking forward to rolling out the education programme with the children. Our Eco Team have worked very hard to lower the energy consumption of the school and the solar panels will now mean we are using even less of our planet’s valuable resources. They make a welcome addition to the school and I want to congratulate everyone involved in the project.

The solar panels are really cool as we’ve been trying to save energy for a long time.
